Every faction thinks their guns are the worst/require the most skill to use effectively.
If anything, NC guns would at least be tied to have a higher cost than the rest.

TR weapons are basic rifles and can be made in masses, ammo as well being only a number of calibers and being nothing but a case, powder, primer, and bullet. VS needs high tech for their weapons but thanks to a single power source (all weapons use the same battery, just not the same amount of charge used per shot) they can afford to shift a LOT of manpower into making weapons or into their tech. NC on the other hand is FILLED with vastly different weapon types and ammo types Gauss, rifle, converted mining equipment, prototype anything, and likely more with each of them needing their own R&D systems.

It takes a fuckton a work and costs to start making something, ask anyone that works in R&D. But next to nothing once mass production is set in place. And that is what would kill NC weapons if for some reason PS2 gave infantry weapons a cost.
